^^ the Merry Xmas at the end made me laugh.

From what I understand you only lose flavour/aroma if you had too much. 1/2 tsp in 5 gallons seems to be the conservative dose recommended by most

If you need to wait more that 48 hours for it to clear with a cold crash, you're doing it wrong.

I've tried gelatin and didn't like how it stripped the aroma. I got a better beer without it. Definitely makes sense to use on non-hoppy beers, but I'll never use it again on an APA/IPA.
What hops should I grow? Looking for cheap honey?

Drinking:3726 rye saison, soured TYB Saison Brett Blend, TYB Saison Blend II, local sour cherry kriek, oud bruin, saison bottled with ECY34
Carbing: Ardennes BDSA, apricot golden sour, an irresponsibly hop-bursted Conan DIPA
Aging: 3726 saison w/ brett x2 (dregs mix & Lochristi), witbier w/ brett, sour cherry mead, rye sour ECY20/ECY34 split, several other sours, acerglyn, and probably some stuff i've lost track of...

That beer needs a couple weeks of cold crashing
